This is what the living room with the old kitchen wall and much debated bedroom nook looked like in the realtor’s photos.
When we came to view the house and liked what we saw I immediately knew I wanted that nook for my bedroom so Wille could have the top floor basically to himself. It was in no means a sacrifice. I love that I have this whole floor to myself when Wille has friends over and he LOVES the upstairs n’ balcony. The fact is that I hardly ever go upstairs when Wille’s away, I love “my” floor.
I gave you a sneak peek the other day, but drumroll please, here’s my nook!
As you know I went for grey paint for the walls and I love how it shows off my freshly painted ceiling and trim. I love waking up in here and looking out into the living room, sun (when we’re lucky) shining straight onto me there in bed from the window.
This is a small space so I had to get a new bed (140 cm wide. Sultan Salhus with Tafjord pillow top, the same I got for my half of the bed at the old house) so I would have enough space on the sides for bedside tables. They are still work in progress, or rather thrifting in progress as I haven’t yet found any good ones. At the moment an IKEA Helmer acts as a stand in.
So for the details, in case you are wondering; Pillow cases sewn from Svenskt Tenn fabrics. Art by Blanca Gomez and Tiel Seivl-Keevers. The B is a sample from China and the little tulip chair is one of these.
I treated myself to an orchid after finishing the nook. The blind is Enje by IKEA. The white glass pot came from Åhléns quite a few years ago. The wooden B is one Martin made a long time ago and the art is a flea market find in an IKEA frame.
Opposite from the bed are PAX wardrobes from IKEA. I got the high gloss Fardal doors which match the high gloss kitchen cabinet doors. I also went for the same Klippig handles as in the kitchen since this is all one big open space. The ceiling light is Garland by Tord Boontje and the dot carpet, again by IKEA.
Yes, that’s a curtain there behind that weird little window but that’s a different post.
As for the cat bed, it must be the most FAQ on Chez Larsson so I’ll answer it one more time; It’s by Whiskas, was a promotional item, isn’t manufactured any more, can sometimes be found on Ebay.
